It's 1950, you've been loaned £100,000 and you've got 100 years to prove yourself a Transport Tycoon.
Transport Tycoon Deluxe presents you with a choice of four vast game worlds (each of which will randomly generate a limitless number of gameplay scenarios) made up of numerous small towns and raw material resources. If you'd prefer, you can even create your own game scenarios using the world editor.
As a budding tycoon you've been loaned a large amount of money and you've got to prove yourself; to set the wheels in motion to become the wealthiest tycoon in the world.
Matched against a batch of ruthless rivals, you'll have to act quickly; to build the key routes that will rake in the cash. Build stations, airports, docks and a linking road, rail, air and ship network that will move passengers, mail or goods to the most lucrative destination. As the years roll by you'll have the chance to buy more advanced and faster vehicles and vessels; if you can afford them!
You'll build stations, docks or airports and make money by connecting areas requiring transport services. You'll construct complex road-, rail-, air- and sea networks and experience cutthroat rivalry as you try to grab your piece of the action. You'll deal with characteristic town councils that express individual and varying attitudes (from appalling to outstanding), and cope with disasters such as UFO's landing on your property, mine collapses, bus, lorry and aircraft malfunctions.
You can even takeover other companies and fund new industries which will bring increased profits for your transportation network.
This is your chance to set the wheels in motion, to become the best, to be THE TRANSPORT TYCOON.
